What do I get for 1 GB?

All of our conversion features track the size of the input file and the size of the output file and count them towards your usage.

Say you convert a 0.8 MB image and the resulting image is 0.2 MB - that is 1 MB together. When you repeat this 1024 times, you will have used 1 GB.
If you also converted a 0.8 MB video into a 0.2 MB one and did this 1024 times, that would be another GB.

The Startup Plan, for example, includes 10 GB for the price of $49. That means you could do over 10000 of such image and video conversions per month for just $49.

If you need to do more conversions in a certain month, then you do not need to upgrade your plan right away. Instead, you will just pay a small premium in that particular month.

What about hosting my files?

With Transloadit, you own your own content, and so we do not offer hosting for your files. Accordingly, we will not charge you for bandwidth or storage of those files.

Besides downloading encoding results from our temporary storage, we can export to a platform of your choosing.

You could for instance create an Amazon S3 bucket and have us export the results there, or check out our other export options such as Rackspace Cloudfiles, or good old (S)FTP.

Which plan do you recommend?

That depends on the amount of data you expect to use. In some cases, it will be more cost-effective to go with a lighter plan and pay for the additional gigabytes, while in other cases, choosing a more robust plan could be more advantageous to you. You can monitor your monthly data usage in your account and switch to a different plan on the last day of each month. Changes made to plans are effective immediately.

What do you mean by 'concurrent priority jobs'?

First off, we will handle any traffic that you send us. However, if you send us gigantic amounts simultaneously and expect everything to be processed at the same time as well, then we will need to reserve some capacity. You can do this by having more reserved priority jobs.

If you exceed your number of concurrent priority jobs, we will start queueing the next ones, regardless of what other customers are throwing at us. Queued items might still be processed swiftly because of our large base capacity and upscaling. However, if your use-case demands high traffic with a real-time feel to it, we recommend that you do not leave things to chance and reserve more concurrent priority jobs.
